Tire Failure Claims in Texas
Dallas Product Liability Attorneys for Victims of Defective Products
From defective manufacturing to poor mechanic maintenance, tire failure can happen for a number of reasons. Tire manufacturers often sell tires that are defective and not fit for ordinary and intended use to unsuspecting consumers. These tires do not perform in accordance with the reasonable expectations of ordinary consumers, leading to dangerous blowouts and accidents. In many cases, the manufacturer has been aware of problems with the tires for a number of years and left millions of defective tires on the road without ever addressing or correcting the issue.

Why Do Tires Fail?
Defective tires can cause blowouts leading to catastrophic accidents for the driver as well as for other vehicles nearby. The vehicle may even swerve into another lane or be unable to stop and cause a multi-vehicle crash. Overall, tire failure is a serious issue that oftentimes could have been prevented by negligent parties.
There are numerous reasons that tires fail, including:
- Tread separation
- Poor quality rubber
- Defective design or manufacturing
- Lack of property inspection by mechanics
- Incorrect curing temperatures
- Negligent testing / sizing of components
- Under-inflated tires
- Incorrect size tires paired with rims
New and old tires can be affected by these issues. The tires on bigger, heavier vehicles are especially prone to tread separation and other manufacturing defects. Damaged or defective tires can lead to rollover accidents, resulting in devastating injuries and even wrongful death in some cases.
